Turkey Justice Ministry: Anti-American sentiment peaks
Ankara seeks to extradite Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen, who is considered as mastermind of coup attempt
Anti-American sentiment in Turkey peaked because of the Muslim religious preacher Fethullah Gülen, which Ankara considers the mastermind of the coup and urges US to extradite him. The Minister of Justice of Turkey Bekir Bozdag stated this, Radio Svoboda reports.
According to him, there is a risk that the relationship between Ankara and Washington could escalate into hostile.
Bozdag said on August 9 that Washington will ‘sacrifice’ alliance with Turkey, if US refuses to give Gulen to the Turkish side.
Gülen, who lives in exile in the United States since 1999, denied any involvement in the attempted coup and condemns it.
